of the incident itself. let's turn to another issue. that is avoiding war. israeli newspaper and a cbs local news department reporting that valerie jarrett has been actually talking with iranians. the white house knocked that down. rumors persist. >> well, there are lots of partners. photos -- people i've talked to say that they have not been leading in the delegation anywhere, but as we discussed before the election, i think one can expect how white house push very early and very intensively to get talks going, whether or not they are bilateral talks, 1- someone, or whether they involve the p-5, there will be talks in an effort to get a deal lou: the iranians are going to begin their exercises, drills, air defense drills over the weekend. >> i think this is in part for domestic political consumption to show that they are standing up to the united states and israel. in part it is intended to intimidate the obama administration, but look. efforts to shoot down on an aerial vehicles, the drills, the continued progress of the iranian of their weapons program of go to show that they are not being slo
explaining that before mr. romney even lost. october 31st, campaign sources told cbs news super storm sandy stalled romney's momentum. a few days before the election, if you hadn't had the storm, there would have been more of a chance for the romney campaign to talk about the deficit. the blame the storm line has continued all through today especially with former mississippi governor haley barbour speaking on the "today" show. >> hurricane sandy saved barack obama's presidency. it broke the momentum romney had coming in the end of october. >> this is a narrative republicans are telling themselves, that the beltway media is also now starting to tell itself because they keep hearing republicans say it. it is not a theory born from reality. this is a checkable thing, emperical idea. their theory is mitt romney was on track to win this thing if it weren't for that blasted storm. this is something we can check. easy. let's start with this. we're all in agreement that the polls were correct despite all the nonsense ahead of the election how the polls seemed so wrong before the election, now that
and her charity spca international were all about helping the troops. this is what she said cbs.com about her charity work. >> we've become real attached to the fact that military personnel love their animals and we want to do everything we can to keep them together. >> sounds great. she sounds nice, right? noble thing to do, right? well, that would be if in fact that is what terri crisp is going. instead, keeping them honest, drew griffin found out only a slim fraction of the $27 million she raised could even possibly have gone toward rescuing dogs. >> reporter: it is the televised appeal on cnn's hln -- >> our salute to the troops today is actually live in the studio. >> reporter: -- that so many of you found outrageous. >> sitting beside nugget is terri with the spca and ivy is at my feet. >> reporter: march of 2011, terri crisp with spca international was telling our viewers ivy and nugget -- >> just look at that face! >> reporter: -- were two bomb-sniffing dogs who had worked for a u.s. contractor in iraq and had been essentially abandoned by the company. she rescued them. and was tr
as unqualified, and as a person who doesn't understand things well enough, like he does. he went on cbs today and called her not very bright, which you will recall is the exact same thing that john sununu said about president obama and his role in the mitt romney campaign. he called him not very bright. the president's response to john mccain's attempted destruction of susan rice and his pledge to block her nomination, and mccain's pledge to block her nomination as secretary of state, the president's response to that has not been to say, i don't want to talk about benghazi, nothing to see her, his reaction has been to say, yes, we should talk about what happened in libya. but the idea that susan rice is going to be your scapegoat here when she has done nothing wrong, that's the part that is nonsense and i'm not going to go along with that. and you're not using something made up about her to destroy a career that is still on its way up. i mine, picking a fight is what they're calling this in the beltway media, right? picking a fight would be installing paul krugman at treasury. picking a fight
years. the facts there have been fact checked by showtime and also by cbs corporate. it's been thorough. you can argue with the interpretations but the facts are solid. >> which interpretations so far -- >> there are several. in that chapter -- we have ten chapters and there's quite a few myths that we go after. one of them is that we, the greatest generation, we won world war ii. america was the victor, comes out in all the books, the greatest generation, band of brothers, stephen ambrose's "private ryan." we're saying the soviet union absorbed the german war machine. tore the guts out of the german war machine. they were moving along the southern flank and taking far fewer casualties. >> stalingrad. millions died. >> 27 million in world war ii. the u.s. lost a little over 300,000. during most of the war the soviets were confronting 200 german divisions. the u.s. and british were ten combined. we don't know that history. >> what is striking and i've only seen the one installment but just in this discussion about the shrussian front for t germans, we continue to have as americans, i thi
forward here to september 16th and now look at what ambassador susan rice says on cbs "face the nation." very different story. >> soon after that spontaneous protest began outside of our consulate in benghazi, we believe that it looks like extremist elements, individuals joined in. >> so, there you go. extremist elements joined in. talking about the idea moving in. on the 19th, yet another change as the director of the national counterterrorism and secretary of state weighed in. they echoed that theme we mentioned a moment ago, wolf. the idea that maybe this was some sort of spontaneous thing. maybe terrorism but just sort of popped up. some officials suggested, fairly enough, that it wasn't clear in the first few hours or days about precisely who was involved. remember, eight days later and now on the 25th, more than two weeks after the attack, listen to the president on "the view." >> then i heard hillary clinton say that it was an act of terrorism. is it? what do you say? >> we're still doing an investigation. there's no doubt that the kind of weapons that were used, the ongoing ass
